Ultra Kaiju Monster Rancher

Publisher Bandai Namco and developer Koei Tecmo shared a new trailer for Ultra Kaiju Monster Rancher at Tokyo Game Show 2022.

The new “Daily Life of a Kaiju Breeder” gives a thorough overview of the new Kaiju raising game, narrated by none other than Monster Rancher mainstay breeder Holly (voice by Mariko Kouda).

Players will be able to choose their Kaiju from birth, which you then raise and battle in tournaments. Kaiju can be combined to get new variants, and NFC can be used to summon more Kaiju.

Here’s the new trailer:
